What Is HANSNAP You Ask?? Here Is A Product Demo!
“The Best Camera Is The One That's With You” - Chase Jarvis
Our smartphones have amazing photo and video quality, and are even starting to be waterproof right out of the factory. HANSNAP’s design allows for quick accessibility to your phone and all of its amazing features. A pivoting arm positioned between the case and the hand strap enable various angles for filming. Simply stated: NEVER DROP YOUR PHONE, ALWAYS GET STABLE FOOTAGE!
HANSNAP was invented by Justis Earle, a Santa Cruz, California native who came up with the idea while crowd surfing at a metal concert.
“I wanted to capture first-person footage so others could share in the amazing experience of floating on a sea of hands.”
How does HANSNAP work? Simply strap HANSNAP to your hand and slip your smartphone in. The pivoting arm between the case and the hand strap enable various angles which stabilize the phone for photo or video capture. They also allow for quick accessibility, screen visibility, and voice control.
Justis and friends have been using HANSNAP in a number of ways over the last couple months:
Moshing / Crowd Surfing, Skateboarding, Mountain Biking, Concert Footage, Tree Scaling, Sailing, 4 Wheeling, Bungee Jumping, Kayaking, Live Streaming Events, Extreme Selfies, Keynote Presentations
Justis built the first prototypes himself and then set out to find the appropriate teams to implement the design, manufacture, and logistics of launching a new product. We have found two great Bay Area design firms, received several manufacturing quotes, and have assembled an amazing team of seasoned professionals as business, marketing, and logistics advisors.
We are only sourcing ethically managed production facilities, and would prefer to produce as much of the product in the U.S. as possible, but have also sourced manufacturing facilities overseas with high working environment standards as a backup. This dedication to a high quality and ethically made product increase our costs a bit, but is something we will not compromise. Thank you for helping us with this vision!

Risks and challenges
We have an amazing team to help us complete this project, but there are always unforeseen snags that we have to count on encountering. Our vision relies on finding ethical USA or International Manufacturing; we have several great sources for ethical manufacturing, but are still open to finding the perfect manufacturing partners for both the hard and soft goods.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
